I know this is a dumb issue....and a dumb question....but has anyone had their gas tank lock seize up? Last time I put gas in, it was fine....now...i cannot get it to unlock....(gas cap)..........and I'm too scared to put pressure on it....in fear of breaking my only key to the ignition....anyone had this?
Before I posted I sprayed wd40 in the lock.....not too much..just a little...and....with a little help it came free....i dunno what the heck caused that...but i hope it doesn't happen again.....luckily i was near home and had enough gas to get there.
Take off the cap and put it inside a container filled with fresh brake fluid over night.
If the glitch was caused from corrosion you'll eliminate any chance of happening again in the near future.
However, if the pins in the lock are worn off, you better change that lock cause next time you'll may have to drill your way into the tank
